Much is made of how computers save our lives and make them better. Efficiency, Apple Macintosh, a hyper-linked world. Yeah, that’s all good when said and done. Except for one thing.
The Save button. Or function. Whatever you like to call it.
Yesterday I was editing a (dull) short film for use as a bit of corporate functionality. Hacking away at the sound. Save. Nothing. Absolutely. A whole afternoon wasted.
You know, I could have played Kirby or something and my life would have been just as productive.
To face the same piece of editing today is heartbreaking. I just, do not want to do it again.
